Blepharitis and Eye Make Up- Do's and Don'ts

Blepharitis and Eye Make-up Do’s and Don’ts

Wearing make-up to enhance beauty dates back to ancient times.  Many of the eye make up consisted of  of toxic mixtures such as copper, belladonna, nitric acid, lead ore, mercury, bird droppings and even burnt matchsticks.   Cosmetics have come a long way since then, but without proper use, they can still greatly affect the eyes and tear film negatively, especially when you have a dry eye condition called BLEPHARITIS.

Blepharitis is an inflammatory eye condition that results in sticky crusty build up on eye lashes.  It is a chronic eye condition that results in inflammation, puffy, red and soar eye lids and dry eyes.  Because blepharitis involve eye lids and eye lashes, eye make up becomes intolerable.  

We highly recommend people with Blepharitis do not wear any make up until they totally recover.  Yes, you can totally recover and start wearing some eye make up once you recover.  Talk to Theralife and learn how.  

A little education can go a long way to forming good habits to keep eyes healthy.

Where to apply 
Eyeliner should never be placed directly on the lid margin as it covers meibomian gland openings which can lead to unhealthy blockages - called meibomian gland dysfunction

What to avoid 

Waterproof eye make-up is difficult to remove. According to a recent Twitter survey approximately 1/3 of women don’t always remove their make-up before bed. Removal often requires the use of harsh cleansers that strip naturally occurring oils from the skin resulting in red, irritated puffy eye lids. One natural option is to use organic coconut oil and it doesn’t contain harsh preservatives.

Avoid powder and glitter-based eye shadows, foundations and blush, and recommend cream-based make-up instead. Powder and glitter can easily become incorporated into the tear film on your eye balls causing irritation.

When to replace
Replace make-up often. We recommend buying new products every 3 months, particularly mascara and eyeliner. Make-up should be immediately discarded after an eye infection and sharing is never a good idea - these are especially important tips for young patients who are more likely to borrow from friends.

Batting an eyelash
Darker, fuller, longer eyelashes are touted in most mascara commercials and perceived key to beautiful looking eyes. Other althernative methods such as permanent lid tattoos, eyelash dyes or false lashes which are applied using adhesive backing or glue can cause allergy, and damage to the meibomian glands and lid tissue, increasing the risk for long-term dry eye disease. Never never do these eye lash enhancements if you have blepharitis.
